I have a few close (out of town) relatives who do not recognize my 2 children (ages 5 &2) on their bdays. They may make a comment on FB wishing them a happy day but no gift, card, phone call. These ppl are not hurting for money. I'm willing to let this slide but what do I do when it's their kids bdays? I hate to be spiteful & punish their kids & not send anything, but at the same time, I hate that my kids are ignored. To top it off, when I have sent something I never receive any sort of acknowledgement or thank you. It's always me txting to find out if they received the gift. My husband is fed up & says it's not about the money, it's about acknowledging our kids the way we do theirs. Any advice? What do I do for the next birthday?
